I recently had the opportunity to write a guest recipe for The Runcible Spoon, which is a local food ‘zine in Washington D.C. It is completely a D.I.Y magazine, that is community driven and promotes eating healthy local foods. Its co-founder, Malaka Gharib, has an amazing talent for not only cooking, but also for drawing the amazing illustrations in the ‘zine. Malaka whips up a mean fetta hamra (our version is here) as well as all sorts of Far Eastern dishes, thanks to her half Egyptian, half Filipino heritage. Below we share my recipe for Om Ali, as originally published in The Runcible Spoon’s 6th Edition. For the background story on Om Ali, check page 9 of the ‘zine out!
